Hello I've been on the depo shot since may and I  have not had my period since October but I have been having side and stomach pain for two weeks and its not getting any better its worse when I'm laying down or running around at work. I'm not sure what it means so what should i do? Could I be pregnant?

HI!
If you were my patient,  I would advise a pregnancy test, but I would suspect that the depo shot is causing the lack of periods and not a pregnancy.
You may want to discuss the pain with your doctor to make sure it is not an ovarian cyst or GI problem
Good luck!
